And in some of the orders of Holy Communion, like the Book of Common Prayer, the narrative is introduced with the words ‘… in the night in which he was betrayed …’ We are there as God’s guests, there because God loves to have us there, because Jesus has requested the pleasure of our company. But we are also there as those who have the capacity to betray….That too is part of what is going on at the Eucharist. The Eucharist reminds us of the need for honest repentance –of the need to confront our capacity to betray and forget the gift we have been given.”
